Instructor Resources

Supplemental Notes Formal notes related to math, modeling, and design. These notes are "mini chapters" or "quick look up resources" containing only essential information.
Supplemental Example Problems More additional example problems will be included. An instructor can get the problem and the solutions, and use them to discuss with classes.
Project Ideas Often projects are assigned at the end of a semester. Here we include a couple of project ideas.
Supplemental Homework Problems There are a large number of homework problems. However, there seem never to be enough good homework questions. An instructuro may want to browse a list of supplemental homework problems, arranged by Chapters and by topics. The problems are numbered so that an instructor can directly assign homeworks from here.

The following resources are available to verified instructors by email.
